Rick Santorum on Climate Change: Talk to the Plants!

by at . Comments

Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum said yesterday that voters can trust his judgment on the environment ... and that climate change is baloney.

At the Gulf Coast Energy Summit in Biloxi, Mississippi, Santorum basically said that climate change is a liberal myth - in fact, plants are totally doing well!

"The dangers of carbon dioxide? Go tell that to a plant, how dangerous carbon dioxide is," he said. It's true. Plants eat that stuff up like it's their job!

Nice Rick Santorum Picture

"I didn't change as the climate changed," the ex-U.S. Senator added, seemingly likening Mitt Romney to ... the rising global temperatures he denies exist?

"I stood tall. Now the climate has changed and everyone's for drilling now. But please understand that when times were tough, they were not and I was."

In case it wasn't clear, Santorum said he stands alone in the GOP field as the opposite of President Obama on energy, calling global warming a "hoax."

On Saturday, an op-ed penned by Santorum on RedState (dot) com explained:

"The Washington Establishment would rather fight global warming than fight for American jobs ... President Obama and his administration have decided to wage war against global warming and thus against the American worker."

"Those living on or near the Gulf Coast in particular know the impact these extreme environmental positions can have on the region's economy."

What do you think: Is climate change real?

We have tried talking to the plants, but Senator Inhoffe is just not listening! Santorum is worse than Obama. LIke night and day. Trust my judgement. CO2 is plant food. But, there is too much of a good thing here. Also, without water (drought is increasing. CA will suffer 50% to 70% loss of snow pack) that "food" won't be used. Forests are dying due to climate change.Etc. , etc. Hundreds of millions will die because people like Santorum are without conscience. ONly ambition drives him; we have seen raw ambition's calamities before. They are focused on one thing. Being #1. Some man of the book!

@ Alan/ you can't imagine how this Country could care less as to what your European Countries think! In fact Obama wants us to be like you and that's reason enough to vote him out! European Health scare sucks and you know this! Your unemployement rate is high! Your countries are not the Benchmark for anything good! So don't even come to this site with that judgemental shit!

Anyone is better than Obama. Until China and South America can get on board with this Global Warming thing then it's all for not! Santorum is not going to get the bid anyway - what people better do is find a way to get there ass's a job and it won't be with the current Administration. Obama has done nothing to help or prevent global warming. He doesn't want to drill so China comes off shore and starts drilling. Global Warming- this Weak minded Administration has done nothing to help the climate or the people.
